The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple complaints about the hotel's breakfast. 

Although the majority of reviewers praised the quality of the hotel's breakfast, a couple of guests mentioned it lacked variety. One patron noted, "My only suggestion is if you don't like a particular food ask about the menu to make sure you get what you want for breakfast (which I failed to do as I don't eat bacon or eggs, which were done up quite fancily) yet I still ate a great tomato provincial and yummy muffins and fruit crème with granola".
